Great small art museum

Excellent collection of top quality art and sculpture in an easy viewing venue. A very good way to see a variety of grand masters and different styles at close range.

You have to be a lover of an old art, then you get a lot out of it. I wanted to see primarily a millionaires home, but it was so conservative and formal, that it did not impress me.

After several trips to the city, I finally made it out to the Frick. It is a wonderful gem of a museum, with an outstanding small collection of master works. The greatest part for me, though, was being able to walk through a gilded age Fifth Avenue home in it's near original condition.

This wonderful museum is across the road from Central park and is full of works of art and priceless pieces of furniture. There is so much to see and read about the history of the house and the family who donated it so that everybody could enjoy the possessions that had been gathered over a number of years. Well worth... More

Limited is size and scope (which is perhaps a virtue), this is one of NY's little treasures. Can be visited fairly quickly, but shouldn't be missed. A beauty.

Unlike the Met, one can "do" the Frick comprehensively in about two hours. Some exquisite paintings here, including three Vermeers to the Met's five. My favorites include the paired portraits of Thomas More and Cromwell by Holbein the Younger and a stunning portrait of an Italian nobleman by Bronzino, and a teen-age Lady Hamilton by George Romney. If Frick's tastes... More

On a winter day back in 1974, as part of an Art History class from University of Connecticut, I visited the Frick with 8 other students. We wore boots and pants. Believe it or not, the women had to change from our slacks to olive green A-line skirts. I kid you not. I'm sure the policy has changed but I... More

We visited this in April of this year and were in for an extremely pleasant surprise! So many original old masters in one place and yet not enough to have one come away with a splitting headache from staring for hours. So nice to be able to see the Rembrandt's, Turners, Gainsborough's and many more up close. Wouldn't like to... More

The property is lovely by in large, but the art was from a very specific genre, which was not one of our preference. Portraits make up a large percentage of the works, outside of the Turner exhibit. They have a strict policy about taking any photos, or even pointing at the artwork. Wish I had skipped this to spend more... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
